The distributor/rotor has to be installed in the same orientation as it was removed. Can I assume you didn't do this? You will need to remove it and position it back in correctly. Here is some help in getting it right.....http://www.f150forum.com/f10/how-figure-out-timing-when-distributor-replaced-98631/
